line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his plate. >> all right. peter alexander, white house correspondent, thank you so much. >>> we want to tur

. there will be a framework for people to pay back taxes, taxes they could not pay before. there are signs of political bipartisanship on this issue. here is the leading republican senator speaking on sunday. >> what has changed is there is an appreciation on both sides of the idle, including on the republican side of the aisle that we have to enact a comprehensive reform bill. >> here is the leading democratic senator, who is giving a nonsuit now a leading republican -- a nod to the leading republican and the idea of border control. >> we are trying to get immigration reform. i am cautiously up a mistake -- optimistic. i have seen things that were once off the table for discussion being on the table for a pathway for word. there will be enhancement of the board of security with more border patrol. >> there are no guarantees politicians will be able to get this done. it is not a new issue. look for the debate on tiger border patrol -- tighter border controls. even in these economic times there is still plenty of work for undocumented workers to do things like waiting tables and gardening. >> immigrants

running the country. policymakers who believe in structural reforms, privatization, tax reforms, budget cuts, labor mobility, and they need to be competitive both internally and externally. if you don't have, if you don't have plans like that you will not get them back to growth anytime soon. so it's very, very important that you do that. seven, the point is the private sector. and i think this is a problem. because at the beginning there was no interest in the case of greece and some of these other countries involved in the private sector. and, in fact, it was a when things got so bad that greece called upon the private sector with the european union. the european central bank and the international monetary fund, to really get the private sector involved. and there you had a big haircut that could've been dealt with earlier. it would have been as bad and now they just have to do another debt buyback problem, operation, which is still a problem. so i think the idea getting the private sector involved early on, and we show this both in latin america and asia, the asian financial crisis.

undergoing background checks, paying taxes in a penalty and learning english and certainly anything republicans would sign on to, coral, th carol, they'd have a tougher pathway. >> senators have a plan, the president has a plan and the house members say they have a plan. whenever the house gets involved usually there's trouble so what do you think? >> reporter: certainly they will be farther to the right, that would be the expectation, so trying to get all of those ideas out there, and then i think we'll have a better sense of if there may be some insurmountable differences. the difference and you're hearing this also from house republicans, we heard this over the weekend from paul ryan, that they want to do something. obviously the devil is in the details, and the truth is, carol, that time is really what will tell. we can't tell if this is going to succeed right now but when you look at the past, 2007, president bush failed in his attempt to deal with immigration reform, conservative members of his own party scuttling that effort and in 2010 you had kind of a peaiecemeal measure i

is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start paying highway taxes like you do for gasoline, that is suddenly going to get more expensive. already you cannot recover your cost of those conversions. certainly do not need all us to pay for those conversions. the problem will be solved in the marketplace, particularly with what is available to us as a resource base today. and that is our own production. one other factor a lot of people miss, besides a wealth creation and all of those things, a big one is that the psychological benefit of us not being under the thumb of opec any longer. the american public likes to be independent. we like to be free. suddenly we can be free from what we have been under for 50 years. the psychological impact of that is huge. >> i have always thought the the impact of oil on american middle east policies was understated. there is an episode where he is looking at the equipment and the people and investment and he says, it costs a lot of money to steal oil. [laughter] i think you're right, there's a certain psychological advantage to it. griffin we

not think we can continue to tax the american economy. it is about prioritizing spending. i am a fiscal conservative it. we have to get our spending under control. will you utilize your position to encourage the president to work with us and good faith to solve the debt and deficit issue? >> i spent six months or five months as a member of the super committee. i put an enormous amount of energy and help that we would be able to get the big bargain, granted deal. i am not here to go through all the details what we did not. there was a very hard line, not negotiating position that prevented us from being able to come to an agreement which, incidentally, she we just came to. we can do it with far less on the table and far less accomplished that we would have if we can to the agreement six months ago or one year ago. my hope is, yes, i will weigh in on that to a degree that it has an impact on my ability to do my job and the ability of the state department to do its job. we cannot reduce the funding for some of these initiatives that we are engaged in without great cost to our ability to be
